UBC Okanagan/Okanagan College Location Reference: UBC Okanagan is at the site of Okanagan
University College’s North Kelowna Campus (NKC), about 5 minutes from the Kelowna Airport.
Okanagan University College’s South Kelowna Campus (SKC) will be a primary campus location
for the new Okanagan College. For your reference, SKC is near the Kelowna City centre and more
than 15 kilometres distance from NKC, therefore appropriate ground transportation should be
considered when planning your trip.
